I take care of patients with all kinds of bone and soft tissue tumors and cancers, including sarcomas, desmoid tumors, GIST, and PVNS (tenosynovial giant cell tumor). I an an expert not only in standard chemotherapy treatments, but also am active in clinical trials including immunotherapy, and personalized/precision medicine.
I believe that medicine, especially cancer medicine, is best practiced as a partnership between doctors, researchers, and patients. Decisions are always best made as a team effort, taking into account every aspect of a patient's unique situation!
I enjoy hiking and camping, my Peloton bike, and I love traveling! I have also recently picked back up playing piano, a hobby and passion that has been on the back burner since medical school.
I am active with several patient-initiated foundations as an advisory board member, helping to empower patients, families and advocates to advance research to find a cure for sarcomas.
I enjoy speaking to patients, families, and physicians in the community to raise awareness of sarcomas and to provide updates on new research including immunotherapy. Many videos and talks can be found online as well!
